How to get a discount on a new large format printer — and free up office space too

Technology ages — and as printers come out with more efficient designs and higher image quality, replacing aging equipment makes sense. But what do you do with your old printer? Use it to make your new printer cost even less. HP is currently running a trade-in program for DesignJet and PageWide XL printers through the end of July. With the HP DesignJet and PageWide Trade-In, upgrading to a newer model is an even more cost effective solution — here’s how it works.

First, chat with a representative at Photo Direct to check for trade-in eligibility. With a long list of available trade-ins for DesignJet and PageWide printers, chances are good that your older model is on the list.

Before filling out a trade-in request, you’ll need to know what printer you’d like to trade up to, so while you’re chatting with us, explore the latest options from HP that may work for you. The latest DesignJet, for example, is the Z6 and Z9+ with HP Pixel Control and Dual Drop Ink for better prints with more efficient performance.

Next, fill out a trade-in request and send it in following the instructions on the form. HP will respond via email with a no obligation quote. You have 45 days to decide whether or not use the offer. To accept the trade-in, use the link provided in the email and enter your information. You’ll also need a proof of purchase for the new HP printer.

Finally, you’ll send in the old printer back to HP. Once the company receives the old printer, you’ll receive a refund for that portion of the new printer, as specified in the trade-in agreement.

HP’s trade-in program solves a couple of common issues with upgrading to the latest technology. One, it reduces the cost of the new printer via a rebate. And two, it frees up office space for the new gear in an ecologically responsible way.

Ready to submit your trade-in, or have questions on the program? Photo Direct can help with trade-in requests — just remember, the deadline for HP’s current program is July 31.
